Welcome to YOUR Portland Neighborhood Community

Hey, my family and I are moving back to Oregon after being in Phoenix for the last 2 years. We are from Central Oregon. But husband is getting a job in portland so off we go. We are both 26 years old with 2 boys and 2 dogs. One of our sons is in school. My husband will be working downtown so we need to find a house where he could get to work fairly easy and fast. Dont want to be stuck in a traffic jam all morning. We are looking for a single family house with at least one garage. 3 bed, with a fenced back yard by good schools. We are really calm and want a great neighborhood for our family. Our budget would probably be 1200 max. If anyone could help us find something or tell me a good neighborhood to look. Ive been looking in cedar hills just not sure.

I would probably avoid West of Portland (Beaverton) because that tends to be the worst commute (still in Portland the commutes aren't as bad as other larger cities).  I did that commute for 5 years and it got old quick!  I think if you look at SE neighborhoods, NE neighborhoods, and North Portland you will find the commute easier to Downtown.  If you want to rent a house, check http://www.housingmaps.com/

It allows you to set a filter by price range and dogs. :-)

I think you might really enjoy SE Portland neighborhoods. Belmont, Buckman, Kerns, Sunnyside, NE Neighborhoods Boise Eliot, Alamdea, Irvington, Hollywood, North Portland Arbor Lodge, St. Johns, Kenton or Piedmont.  http://www.portlandneighborhood.com/portland-neighborhoods.html

Good luck!

"Hello Faliscia, The first question is "what is your budget?" That is going to narrow your choices drastically. Richmond, Boise, Sunnyside, Mt. Tabor are all great areas. But not helpful if you can only afford to live in Centennial. "

Best Portland Oregon Hotels - or where to stay when you need to lay your head down at night

If you're traveling to Portland Oregon, either to visit or in preparation for moving there, you need to have a place to stay. Many people stay out at the Portland Airport, making a common mistake in thinking that it is "centrally located to everything."No... not even close. It can easily take 45-60 minutes in normal traffic to drive the few miles from the airport to downtown. Longer if it is rush hour. The best bet…See More
